It's been a while since I'm learning Swedish so I decided to make a thread (as there is NoNe). Well I find Swedish very easy but it has it's difficulties too as well. First of all I'm loving the melody of this language and as we are on metal forums this track by Sancta Poenas will help one to get what I mean by the 'melody of language'
as for actually language, first stat with letters: Ã„ Ã¤ - sounds like a in apple Ã– Ã¶ - sounds like o in word Ã… Ã¥ - sounds like o above, but it's a bit short o as I noticed. A a - sounds like u in under O o - well sometimes sounds like o in open ans sometimes like u in urban. I don't know if there is any rule to know which is which, you just have to know it.
there are two undefined articles in Swedish like they have 2 'a', but it's very simples the articles are: En and Ett and there are En-words and Ett-words which Means you can't use en article with ett-word, again, you have to know which is which. For example: a woman is en kvinna and you just can't say ett kvinna, it's a terrible mistake xD a tree is - ett trÃ¤d so, what about the 'the' article? well if you want to say the woman you just take the 'en' and put it at The End of the word.for ex: a woman - en kvinna the woman - kvinnan (if wordends witha vowel you add only n) a wall - en vÃ¤gg the wall - vÃ¤ggen (if word ends with a consonant, you add en)
it's pretty same with the 'ett-wrods'
an apple - ett Ã¤pple the apple - Ã¤pplet (+ t with vowels) a house - ett husthe house - huset ( + et withconsonants )
kinda simple, isn't it?
and a little about pronouns and 'to be'
I - Jag I am - Jag Ã¤r
She - hon She is - hon Ã¤r
He - han He is - han Ã¤r
They - de [sounds like dom ] They are - de Ã¤r
see? verbs don't change within plural and pronouns like it does in English, which makes Swedish awesome! well that's enough for the brief information.
If I made any mistakes, dear native speakers, my all Means correct me please!
once again, I'm not a Swede so if you want something to translate or whatever I can't help you yet. If I wasn't helpful at all, I'm sure this vid will be. Once you watch it, you;ll never fail in Swedish, never again!
Tack fÃ¶r din tid!
